They’ll appear alongside Lady Gaga, BTS, Malala Yousafzai, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, and many others.

This event will also feature a virtual after party, where BTS will perform, and special appearances from Alicia Keys, Zendaya, Kerry Washington, and others will also happen.

“I’ve always loved joining commencements––the culmination of years of hard work and sacrifice. Even if we can’t get together in person this year, Michelle and I are excited to celebrate the nationwide Class of 2020 and recognize this milestone with you and your loved ones,” he posted on Twitter with the lineup of graduation events.

It was also announced that Barack will appear in LeBron James‘ online graduation special, Graduate Together: America Honors the High School Class of 2020.
